How do I adjust the freezer door on my Kenmore refrigerator model 72791 so that it is level?

Thank you for your help. I will try to be very detailed.
This top mount freezer has the handle on the left, the hinge on the right. It is unlevel horizontally, sloping downward right to left about 3/8". It is also unlevel vertically, the door about 5/8" from the unit at the top sloping out to about 1 & 1/4" at the bottom.
I can loosen the hinge (I noticed I didn't tell you the hinge shim apparently was never installed, so is not there), brace the door, and get it level in both directions. However, after tightening the hinge, when I remove my bracing the door falls back out of level.
Per your 2nd suggestion, I inspected the hinges at the top and bottom of the refrigerator door and they appear to be sound. I removed the freezer door and removed, cleaned, and replaced the plastic washer on the top refrigerator hinge.
Thanks again for your assistance. Images are attached.
